Digital Tipping Point: Steve Weber, creator of the phrase "anti-rival goods" 11
Of all the bright minds who have sat for DTP interviews, none does a better job of explaining why Free Open Source Software is so different from anything that humans have done before. Unlike rival goods, such as a chocolate cake, which decreases in supply the more it is consumed, Free Open Source Software increases in supply the more it is consumed. If there are 10 pieces of chocolate cake, but 11 people at a party, one person will not get cake, or will have to take part of someone else's cake.
Free Open Source Software is the opposite. Steve Weber tells us why.
